22 Sept 2006-7 Jan 2007. Viennas Albertina Museum presents an exhibition of around 200 artworks from the last 12 years of Pablo Picassos life. In 1961, at the age of 80, the Spanish artist acquired a country house on the French Riviera where he worked against time, following a rigid daily schedule. This exhibition focuses on the contrast between the meticulous, detailed drawings and the masterfully speedy, wild and sensual paintings produced in the years before his death in 1973. Featuring Picassos favourite themes including nudes, disparate couples, self-portraits and love scenes, the exhibition draws on paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures from over 60 different institutions and collectors. Admission 10, students and over-65s 7.50, under-6s free. Daily 10.00-18.00, Weds 10.00-21.00.
